The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody.... I have some quick questions for you guys. In August this year I will make my very first visit to America from Switzerland. Also I will stay there for two days (Sunday and Monday) in the near Hilton hotel. Can I walk to the park from there or do I need to get a taxi?

 

Thank you very much for your replies.

 

As far as needing a Taxi from the Hilton you will not need it. Long as its the Garden Hilton 27710 The Old Rd, heck they are closer than some parking spots at SFMM. Also they offer a free shuttle to main gate from the hotel and pickup service also. Travel from LAX I will look at later.

 

Thank you so far. That's nice to know about the free shuttle service as I'm staying in the Garden Hilton you mentioned!

I'm a little surprised by how much I like the way the new ride looks, silly name notwithstanding.

 

Despite the complaints about the colors, I agree it looks great. It looks very beachy, and those lights at night are going to really make that area pop.

I like the color scheme, too, but does anyone think that it already looks faded? I'm sure it's not, but knowing how paint fades at this park due to the elements, maybe they should've chosen a slightly darker color scheme?

I give it 2 years before the California sun mutilates the paint

Uber is your best bet if you don't want to waste hours using public transportation.

 

Well that pretty much sums up my request, thank you guys!

 

In looking at some online reviews as of 1/1/2018 the Hilton discounted the shuttle service to Six Flags due to the park going year round and the Hilton unwilling to hire a full time driver. (beats me) I just looked at that Hilton site and it lists "Local Area Transportation". To me that sounds like Six Flags is still in play. Perhaps its just a summer thing. Worse comes to worse you walk up the hill or walk next door to McDonald's and offer someone $5 US dollars and I'm certain you will get a lift.

^ It's not faded, I saw it up close yesterday. That looks like some sort of filter on the photos.

It is — my apologies. I usually run all images through a desaturation filter. It's pretty bright in person.

 

Yeaaa, on second glance, I don't see how I didn't see there was a filter on that photo. My bad, carry on.

Went to the park Tuesday and it was fairly hot and crowded so my friend and I stopped in to see the Kwerk show for the first time...

 

...it was INCREDIBLE!!! Great music, ridiculously fun choreography, and 4 insane “circus acts.” There was so much talent on stage and the production value faaaar exceeded our expectations. It was so good, we decided to go back later in the day and watch it a second time!

 

Just wanted to say, don’t miss this! Kwerk (although a cringeworthy title) is really really special, and I’m honestly shocked it exists at Magic Mountain.

I haven't seen this summer's iteration of Kwerk yet but that's a great endorsement. Looking forward to seeing it!

 

I passed along your comment to the stage manager as well as they always appreciate nice compliments.

So there is also the possibility to walk from the hotel? That would be great.

I totally agree with Daniel. I haven't seen this year's show, but previous years have been great! An additional plus is getting AC on a hot day...

I just want to point out that this walk is going to be close to a mile from the hotel to the front gate and it's uphill most of the way. And I'm not sure if there is actually a sidewalk the entire way but there's plenty of grass on the side. So as long as you're okay with that, you can definitely walk from the hotel to the park.

Side note: I'm glad the L.A. area finally has a Black Bear Diner.

 

there's been near me by Knott's for like 4 years now.

 

also, SFMM won the USA Today best park again. but i also think they are the only park i get emails from, or follow on social media that spams for votes. LOL

Youll love it. No more convenient place to stay for SFMM. It's so nice to be able to just walk back to your room in the afternoon, shower, change, grab a bite, and then go back to the park for the rest of the day nice and refreshed.
